Rock band U2 have won their battle against former stylist Lola Cashman over ownership of a number of personal belongings they claim she had no right over.
Cashman, 45, had been planning to sell a Stetson hat that she claimed were a gift from the band’s singer but following a Dublin court ruling, Cashman has to return the hat as well as other items including two mugs, a sweatshirt and two photographs.
While Cashman had to return some items, the Judge ruled she could keep other items including a pair of black Converse All Stars which were previously owned by drummer Larry Mullen.
In an interview with Ireland’s Sunday Independent, East End born Cashman revealed she was a “Jewish princess” and only wanted to sell the items to raise some much needed cash.
In 2003, Cashman wrote a book about her experiences of being with the band called Inside The Zoo With U2 which is said to have angered the band with its allegations of Bono having problems with his weight.
“The book was reprehensible – that is why I am here,” Bono said of going to court. “She took advantage of the band for remuneration. I am very annoyed about the book.”
Despite their falling out, U2′s lawyer said the band would not pursue Cashman for their legal costs.
